June 2008Bloomberg European Law Journal, Vol. 2, No. 6
After many months of expectation and suspense, the wait is almost over. On 23 April 2008, the
U.S. Department of Treasury published proposed regulations that implement changes mandated
by the Foreign Investment and National Security Act of 2007 regarding U.S. Government
review of foreign investment in the U.S. While the proposed regulations leave such review largely
unaltered, they introduce some significant changes as well.
